We’ve just returned from the State House where the President of Burundi lives with his family. Our team was invited to be their special guests after tonight’s Gospel meeting. We had another full service. There was wonderful worship, I preached a Gospel message, gave an invitation for salvation, and we prayed for the President and his top government officials who were all present. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. They truly fear the Lord and desire to serve Him.

Tonight’s final meeting, of this Gospel Crusade, was an amazing success. The only difficulty that we had was the size of the crowd. There were so many people that were pressed onto that field. I was concerned, at certain points, that someone would suffocate. We removed the barriers so that the people could fill all the available space in front of the platform. As you can see from the pictures, the platform looked like a raft floating on an ocean of humanity! (…continued)

This morning was the final meeting of the Fire Conference here in Bujumbura, Burundi. By the time Peter van den Berg finished preaching in the first session, the people were filled with faith and expectation. A massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit followed in both the Fire Conference and in the evening crusade meeting.

Tonight, the crowd grew to 150,000 people! The President of Burundi honored us, by attending and opening the meeting. He even proceeded to lead the crowd in some worship with his wife. It’s the first time I’ve been in a meeting where the worship leader was the President!

After the preaching of the Gospel and praying for the sick, we heard many wonderful testimonies. These testimonies included (…continued)

Tonight the crowd grew to more than 100,000 people here in Bujumbura, Burundi. The crowd at the front of the field was packed so tightly that it looked like no one could move. Peter van den Berg said there were up to 7 people per square meter! It seems that the whole city is coming to the meetings. Even the Fire Conferences (that take place each morning), have been attended by high ranking government officials, including (…continued)

A Full “Snake Pit” – Bujumbura, Burundi – Day 1

Tonight, our evangelistic crusade began with more than 70,000 people in attendance! There is an electricity in the air. The whole city of Bujumbura is buzzing with anticipation. I’m sure this will be a historic week for the nation of Burundi.

Tonight, as always, I preached a simple and clear message of salvation to which tens of thousands responded enthusiastically. As we were praying for the sick, demons began to manifest all over the field. I had not preached about deliverance, or prayed for the demonized, but the “snake pit” (where our counselors cast the demons out) was filled. Afterwards, amazing miracles took place. Some of them are listed below (…continued)
